To celebrate Culture Days' fifth anniversary, a special project called Conduct Us was undertaken across Ontario in 2014. The project is now complete.

Who hasn’t waved their arms dramatically along to a symphony playing on the radio? Bring your classical music fantasy to life! In celebration of Culture Days’ 5th anniversary, over a dozen professional and amateur orchestras, big bands and choirs are remounting Conduct Us in communities across Ontario. The public are invited to step up to the podium and pick up the baton for a once-in-a-lifetime chance to lead a live ensemble. Conduct Us will be a thrilling experience for all ages.
